No end in sight to Jimmy Graham standoff with Saints?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Franchised player Jimmy Graham has until April 22 to file a grievance against the Saints for tagging him as a tight end. He and his representatives have said they believe he's more of a wide receiver than a tight end based on where he lines up and what he's asked to do. The Saints insist he's a tight end. 

It was initially believed by ProFootballTalk.com that the Saints and Graham would agree to terms before the deadline for a grievance arrived. But general manager Mickey Loomis said the team doesn't view April 22 as a deadline to get a deal done. The Saints have until July 15 to sign Graham to a multi-year deal; if they don't then he can only sign the one-year franchise tender. 

Graham had 86 catches for 1,215 yards and 16 touchdowns last year.

Saints owner confident about Jimmy Graham talks
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Saints owner Tom Benson is confident the team will strike a long-term deal with Jimmy Graham at some point this offseason, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. "He's a hell of a good player, but he's also a good person," Benson said. "I'm confident we'll work out something. We just have a little bit of time to do it. That's all."

Benson said there's no pressure to get a deal done quickly, despite the April 22 deadline for Graham to challenge his franchise tag designation as a tight end. Graham wants to be paid like a receiver.

New optimism in Jimmy Graham stalemate
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Saints and Jimmy Graham are expected to finalize a long-term deal before April 22, the deadline for Graham to file a grievance challenging his designation as a tight end, a league source tells Pro Football Talk. New Orleans placed the tight end franchise tag on Graham.

"Graham can make a strong case for consideration as a receiver for tag purposes," the report said. "The Saints can make a compelling case, too, but they surely have no desire to draw battle lines with one of their best players. That’s why it makes plenty of sense to resolve the situation before it can take a potentially ugly turn."

Jimmy Graham 'shocked and disappointed' by Saints moves
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Saints stud tight end Jimmy Graham has tweeted that he is "shocked and disappointed on everything" his team has done in the offseason.

Graham was apparently not only referring to the non-exclusive franchise tag he received, but also the release of several veterans in an attempt to create cap space. Among them are running back Darren Sproles and wide receiver Lance Moore.

The story could take another twist, however, if those financial moves were made to allow the Saints to offer him a long-term contract.

GM on Jimmy Graham: 'I'm sure we'll get something resolved'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Saints general manager Mickey Loomis told SiriusXM NFL Radio he's still hopeful about signing tight end Jimmy Graham to a long-term deal. The team slapped the franchise tag on Graham, who has yet to sign the tender.

“These negotiations are always a process, and Jimmy's been a great player for us for the last four years,” Loomis said. “Look, I had hoped and I'm sure he had hoped we'd come to some conclusion on a longer-term deal before this. But we haven't yet, and hopefully we will. ... We'll just let it play out, and I'm sure we'll get something resolved.”
